"We are extremely pleased to announce the new Symbio integration," said Coleman Kane, CEO and president at PTI. "A key strength of MarcomCentral is its ability to connect powerful workflow solutions. Onpoint On Demand’s Symbio solution enhances our client's ability to be successful."

GSB Inc., a mutual customer of Onpoint On Demand and Printable, was the first organization to employ the new integration. "We wanted to automate our POD manufacturing capability to increase our profit and scalability," says Stephan Steiner, CEO of GSB, Inc. "We use both PTI's MarcomCentral and FusionPro Server™ to support client programs. We purchased Symbio to unify workflows between systems and optimize our manufacturing capability. It appears GSB has made a wise choice in choosing Symbio to automate our workflow. Onpoint has been super easy to work with, and very responsive when the rubber hit the road and our sites went live. Most importantly, their software works and works well."

Clients currently owning both Symbio and MarcomCentral now have the ability to automate POD production to a wide array of digital press and finishing equipment. Other benefits of the integration include: dynamic file retrieval, pre-order and pre-production preflight, intelligent equipment routing, job batching, integrated shipping, and automated credit card settlement.
